Freight Rail & Caterpillar

Freight rail delivered Caterpillar to East Peoria a century ago, and we are still delivering Cat® machines today. A Cat tractor can weigh more than 100 tons. It’s a heavy lift, but nothing compared to helping move the U.S. economy. That’s why America’s freight rail companies invest billions of their own dollars — not taxpayers’ money — to build and maintain a world–class system that keeps America’s commerce moving. Sometimes 100 tons at a time.
